We offer a range of clinics and services including those below. For more information, please visit our Health Review and Assessment Clinic Room.
If you would like to attend any of the below clinics, please visit our Consulting Room.
Our practice can provide the following services:
During your pregnancy your immediate care will be undertaken by the midwife attached to the practice from Dudley Group of hospitals, ask reception using our online form for details.
The midwife will explain your antenatal care and arrange your booking appointment at your chosen hospital. She will also arrange first scans, blood tests and give you information books and leaflets.
Following this appointment you will then be seen at various intervals during your pregnancy by the midwife, the doctor or the obstetrician depending on your specific care plan.
For all appointments, we ask that you bring with you your antenatal notes.
Blood Pressure Test
A blood pressure test is a simple way of checking if your blood pressure is too high or too low. If you have been asked by the practice, you can complete this by using our online Blood Pressure Review form.
For more information about Blood Pressure, please visit the Blood Pressure Tests page on the NHS website.
Child Health Clinic
The child health vaccination programme is managed by the Child Health Department who will contact you with invitations for your baby’s vaccinations which are held in clinic here at the surgery, ask reception using our online Ask Reception a Question form for further details.
Ladies aged between 25 and 64 will be invited to attend for a cervical smear every three years. Smears are undertaken by the practice nurse at the surgery. If you do not receive an invitation (and you are not currently pregnant or have not had a hysterectomy) then please telephone the surgery.
The practice offers a range of contraceptive services including the fitting of intrauterine devices during normal clinic times. These procedures will be carried out by either a doctor or nurse.
If you have been advised by the practice to submit an review of your contraception, please use our online Contraceptive Pill Review form.
Your postnatal check will be arranged for six weeks following the birth of your baby and will be carried out at the surgery by either Dr Allen or Dr Halford.
During this appointment the doctor will also examine your baby for his/her first developmental check. Please bring the baby’s ‘red book’, which you will have been given by the Health Visitor.
If you have not received your postnatal appointment within 4 weeks of your baby’s birth, please telephone the surgery as soon as possible.
Long Term Condition (LTC) Management
The practice provides a comprehensive package of care for patients with Long Term Conditions such as diabetes, respiratory or cardiovascular disease. Clinics are run by the nursing team and overseen by the doctor. The practice has a recall system in place to invite patients for review either once or twice per year.
If you have been asked by the practice, you can complete our Online Asthma Review form.
Lifestyle Support Services
Patients can now self refer for all lifestyle support services to include quit smoking, weight management and exercise advice.
Please ask one of the team for further information. You can complete our online Smoking Review form if you have been asked by the practice to do so.
The practice offers NHS Health checks to all eligible patients aged 45 years and over.
We provide a full range of travel vaccinations (excluding Yellow Fever). When visiting some countries, malaria prophylaxis may be necessary; this will be discussed during your appointment. Please note that whilst some malaria medication can be purchased directly from the chemist, others require a private prescription and cannot be obtained on the NHS.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible, at least six weeks before you travel, as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least two weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
